Execution of three Negroes, in Louisiana

From the Opelousas, La., Gazette, is the story of three slaves who were executed for the murder of John Moore, their overseer.  It seems that the overseer had found whiskey in their cabins, and was going to punish them the next day. Another slave was acquitted, but the article claims it has since been found that he was also guilty, and regrets “that he cannot be tried again and hanged.”  The heading which the Liberator gives to this item is, Fruits of Slavery.
